A high percentage of people who take up exercise are looking to burn fat and therefore many fitness magazines, especially bodybuilding magazines, have praised the low intensity “magic” fat burning zone. The problem with staying in the fat burning zone is that while you are burning a higher percentage of fat, you don’t burn a lot of calories.
Try interval training to increase your calorie burn, while also taking advantage of the fat burning zone during the low intensity interval periods. Ilen & Lauren Bell are the husband and wife team behind Black Fitness Today, born, in 2011, out of their motivation to change culture, build a platform and lead the charge.
Now, if you go on an all day hike or four-hour bike ride, you will burn a significant amount of body fat (that is, if you don't sustain an overuse injury in the process).
Low intensity activities such as walking burn a high percentage of calories from fat when compared to more intense exercises such as sprinting, which burns a higher percentage of calories from carbohydrates.
You must burn 3,500 calories to lose a pound and although walking can get you there, it doesn’t give you the biggest bang for your buck. Their purpose is to help change the culture towards health and fitness in the African-American community, showcase those who are making an impact, and promote healthier living.


The people you see who religiously do 30-60 minutes on the elliptical machine look about the same as they did months ago, don't they? After finishing an intense (but short) workout, your metabolism may be higher for up to 14 hours afterward. If you have limited time to workout, interval training will help you reach your goals faster.
The best bet is to have the best of both worlds; periods of low intensity followed by high intensity exercise. They also aim to serve as a platform for African-American fitness and health professionals and enthusiasts who are otherwise overlooked in traditional fitness media. A smaller percentage of a bigger total can be better than a larger percentage of a smaller total. But if you don't have 4-8 hours every day to work out, high intensity is the way to go (assuming a level of intensity that is safe for you). But at the end of a slow, steady jog, your body will be back to it's steady state within an hour and you will be right back where you started.


And why are we, CrossFitters, getting such amazing results while our workouts last a mere 20 minutes? A higher metabolism post workout means you are burning more calories, even if you're sitting at a desk most of the day.
My grandmother's high intensity will be drastically different from a college athlete's high intensity; it's all relative.
Your body will need time to adapt to the stimulus, as it is vastly different from watching tv on a stairclimber.
